What happened to February?

2 Mar

Considering I actually pay Typepad for this blog, I REALLY should post at least monthly.  But February is short; if it were normal length it would still be Feb.  Ha!  How's that for rationalization?

Progress is continuing very slowly on Ingeborg.  The sleeves are done.

And there's a bit of progress on the body.

I've been moderately monogamous.  I've worked on socks but no other large projects.  My left hand isn't used to participating in my knitting so it gets tired quickly when I'm doing stranded knitting.

Happily, DH picked this lovely colorway for his next socks. 

We thoroughly enjoyed watching the Olympics.  Good job, Canada!  Nice national anthem too.  We've been getting in some end of the season x-country skiing in.  Our snow is melting quickly now and we're probably done.  Bummer.  But we did plant a lot of bulbs last fall so spring should be very colorful!

    Nice to hear from you again. I must check out this “Ingeborg” sweater–that is my late sister’s name. I think I’ll make it to remember herby.

    Sonya- You’re getting there. At least the body is the easy part- and it’s all the fun bits.

    An intricate sweater like that and man sized socks? Who would have time to blog with all that knitting going on?? ;)

    I’m glad DH isn’t afraid of color. I would have guessed those socks were for you – purple. :)
    I’m glad March is long, more time to celebrate! lol :)

    Ingeborg looks fab, you’re practically done.
    Oh yeah, Typepad costs money! I should post one of these days. ::waves hi::

    it looks wonderful, Sonya. Our snow is finally gone and I’ve got the crabgrass killer and grass seeds out already.

    I loved that the Canadian Hockey won the gold, it was just too perfect since it is their national sport after all.
    Beautiful sweater.
    February, when did that happen?

    Wow. Just. Wow. We can wait in between posts when you zap us with that amazing work.

    Ingeborg looks great but I love your purple socks!!! You always knit in my favorite color…
    I am having the same trouble with Typepad. Paying for it monthly and using it very little.
    Ravelry has lured me away…
